Dabu : block print + indigo

Everything about Dabu, an ancient mud resist block printing method is a surprise with raw beauty. The rhythm of each imprint can bring something new.

The shades of blue may vary as small batches of fabric soak in Indigo dye baths exploring chemistry. Waves of Indigo fabric lay spread under the brilliant sun for drying before its washed to release the resist. It is imperfect, beautiful and almost like poetry.

It takes patience, care and a reliance on nature.
